Stunning Sounds
With Roland’s most powerful processing engine at its core, the RD-700SX provides two complete 88-note world-class concert grand pianos, each with individual multisamples for every key, and recorded at a variety of velocity levels. The RD-700SX also contains authentic electric piano and virtual tonewheel organ instruments, as well as an entire GM2-compatible sound set. Load and Play Standard MIDI files with the built-in MIDI File player. Onboard Rhythm and Arpeggiator functions are provided as well.

Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard
The RD-700SX is equipped with Roland’s top-of-the-line Progressive Hammer-Action Keyboard, which provides heavy-to-light response as you climb from low to high octaves, just like a real piano. Combined with a true hammer-action mechanism, the keyboard offers an incredibly natural response that feels and plays like a true grand.

Instant Access
With its front-panel sliders, large buttons, and backlit LCD, the RD-700SX is a fast and friendly instrument to pilot, especially for live performers who need instant, fumble-free access to sounds. The one-touch PIANO and E.PIANO buttons let you recall your favorite instrument sounds and edits — such as changes to the piano's String Resonance and Key Touch, or the E.Piano's Amp type. You can also switch entire groups of settings during a performance by selecting a Setup that you've edited and stored in advance; up to 100 Setups can be stored and instantly recalled.

Onboard Effects
Transform your sound with the RD-700SX’s powerful twin multi-effects engines onboard. Among the many high-quality effects types are reverb, chorus, Sound Control (3-band compressor), and dedicated 3-band parametric EQ with adjustable frequency, Q, and gain for achieving the perfect custom-tailored sound. Dedicated knobs, buttons, and the large graphical display allow intuitive sound control.

Well Connected
The RD-700SX is fully equipped for the gigging professional. Both 1/4" and XLR outputs provide compatibility with all popular types of mixers and amplification systems. And for the utmost in performance expression, the RD-700SX offers inputs for damper pedals and two-function assignable foot pedals. Use the tandem MIDI outs and USB I/O for MIDI control and data backup/exchange. The RD-700SX’s customizable Master Control features allow it to serve as the master for other MIDI instruments. And for audio/visual-minded musicians who want to “play” graphics (via Edirol video equipment), the RD-700SX is V-LINK compatible.

Sound Expansion
The RD-700SX offers an impressive 474 internal tones and 14 rhythm kits, which can be expanded by adding two optional Roland SRX boards. Choose from an impressive lineup of SRX titles, including Complete Orchestra, Big Brass Ensemble, World Collection, Platinum Trax, and more.
